Future of IoT Mobile application Development in 2023
The global pandemic and the evolving times have speeded up the adoption of digital technologies for several years. These changes are here to stay and will become a permanent thing. As we progress in our respective fields, we are somewhere losing the time we have for other things, even the basic ones. This is giving rise to the enormous number of mobile applications being created by web developers. Apps are being developed even for the pettiest of work, such as purchasing groceries, preparing schedules, recording important dates, etc. All these things can be done otherwise, but people are inclined towards having everything on their tips, and a good mobile app is an excellent solution.
IoT in Mobile Application Development
When the Internet of things and mobile app development are brought together, they form a perfect and efficient union. Whenever these technologies join hands, they not only ensure a smooth and effortless interaction between machines and humans but also boost business efficiency and enhance the user experience.
The global IoT market is expected to reach $1,854.76 billion by 2028, compared to $381.3 billion in 2021. This opens up a vast platform and bestows a lot of opportunities for mobile applications to flourish in the presence of IoT.
The inclusion of IoT in mobile app development has opened numerous opportunities for web development companies in Dubai to explore new niches and push the development of their companies to a new level.
SCOPE OF IoT MOBILE APPLICATION IN 2023
The elevation of performance and production capabilities of enterprises in different fields through IoT has generated massive demand for mobile app development and services supporting IoT solutions.
Let us understand the new trends that web developers will be able to see in the upcoming year.
1. Machine learning and artificial intelligence
Machine learning and its superset, artificial intelligence, reduce human error in mobile app development and increases the speed with which software design and development companies create these applications.
Artificial intelligence increases the app performance but also helps to provide a more fruitful user experience by making the app better than before. It helps create a more personalized user experience, automate repetitive tasks, upgrade customer communication, and more.
Let us understand this better with a very recent example. During the covid-19 pandemic, AI and big data were used for contact tracing and implementing quarantine regulations in East Asia. This way, artificial intelligence helped the countries to control the rise of covid cases.
AI can also provide extra support to businesses using software as a service(SaaS) or software as a product(SaaP).
AI modifies SaaS or SaaP mobile apps by upgrading features like image, voice, and face recognition, online payment fraud detection, search and navigation improvements, etc.
2. Conversational UIs with chatbots and voice-first interfaces
With the launch of Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, a new wave of conversational and voice-first apps has entered the market. With this, the users will not be required to tap and swipe to navigate the applications, instead, they can simply use voice control to surf through and use the features.
These days most of websites have the option of chatbots. Akin to that in the upcoming years, mobile apps powered by artificial intelligence will let the user chat with the app. And it will not just be restricted to a single app but will be available across all the applications. These apps will offer superior user experience than the apps developed by traditional methods.
3. Augmented reality applications
Consumers are becoming more informed and expect innovation in the products or services they are paying for. They do not buy anything they see. Customers want to try the product they are purchasing to avoid unnecessary hassle in exchanging the product bought. This is paving the way for augmented apps to enter the market. Augmented reality apps combine virtual experience with reality. There is a vast scope for both B2B and website development and mobile app developers to unleash the hidden potential in this field.
4. Cloud Computing
Cloud computing are one of the best technologies to incorporate into mobile app development. Applications using cloud computing solutions can be run through a web browser and work seamlessly across multiple platforms. The data does not take up additional storage space on your smartphone as everything is stored on company servers and is accessible over the internet.
Cloud-based app functionality allows users to use their mobile storage space for other purposes. The smooth operation of the cloud-based app improves mobile speed and ensures continued use of the app on a central server. Company servers store all the customer information and essential data that they can access at any time. The possibility of data loss due to an app crash is rare as the server runs the app.
IoT mobile apps have conquered nearly all areas of personal and business life and continue to boom. But as the market is highly competitive, website development and design companies and mobile app developers must develop innovations to have the edge over their competitors. There is a tremendous amount of scope of IoT-based apps shortly as technology is growing more than ever. Romil Bahl, CEO of Kore wireless, said that mobile applications will become the ‘new normal’ and the upcoming decade will be ‘the decade of IoT’. There isn’t greater proof that can be offered to explain the dormant prospects in the field of IoT mobile applications.
